Doug Boyer has been seeing bald eagles regularly on the Lake Alice the past month. He took these photos of a juvenile eagle on Sunday morning.

“His colors are not done changing,” Boyer said. “As an adult only the head and tail will be white.”

Boyer captured several images of the eagle in flight.

Kathy Kast of Gaines took this photo of a red tail hawk in a nest on Tuthill Road, just south of Route 31 on the east side of the road.

Elizabeth Carpenter of Carlton took these pictures of young red foxes being raised under a neighbor’s shed on Green Acres Drive, a fire lane off Carlton-Yates Townline Road.

The fox have some play time on a recent sunny day. “I have been waiting for the appearance of these baby fox for days! I had a feeling they were under the neighbor’s shed, because I saw all the signs,” Carpenter said. “They had been there last year, too. Another beautiful sign of Spring!”
